Lovely restaurant by the canal. Friendly and funny owner. Staff really professional and efficient! the speciality here is Fish but you can also get meat... a really nice typical French restaurant! The starter, a green salad with mozzarella and salmon was amazing!

Everything was great until the steak. It was almost inedible. I was fortunate to have the fish which was beautiful. But the three people I was with ordered the steak and it was a huge disappointment. There was no real piece of meat in it. The wine selection was great the service was fine.

We have arrived 15 minutes after the kitchen has closed , nevertheless have been able to eat "le plat du jour" so aether meat or fish. We have taken both and we're happy with the quality. However, the servant was not very friendly and let us wait for him some time even though we were in a hurry. Also it... More

After disappointing experiences at Les Chimeurs and Sarto, we were deliberating whether we should try the Lyonnais, given the mediocre reviews. Thank goodness we did. The setting is outstanding, right by the canal, right in the heart of the tourist area. The interior has been renovated, and was beautifully set out with linen cloths and tableware. We decided to go... More

Our group of 9 (adults and children) came across this canal-side restaurant while wandering through Annecy. The service was a trifle erratic (nothing another waiter/waitress wouldn't have cured), and there was some confusion over what the 'prix fixe' and prix formule' comprised. Nevertheless, the limited choices we were offered were excellent (simple dishes such as ham & melon starter, mains... More

Dinner was so good we went again the next night. Staff was a bit rude, which is strange since the owner is such a nice guy. He's funny and entertaining. He knew we were from the US so he would introduce us to any english speaking patrons. Had some great conversations. The food definitely makes up for any staff issues.... More

Our desired restaurant for lunch was still closed for holidays and the alternative was fully booked. We wandered the old town from the lake and this was the most appealing restaurant open on a Monday. We enjoyed a delicious lunch - choosing the special menu. The foie gras was excellent, as was the smoked salmon, both steaks were cooked as... More

Great setting, lovely views & friendly staff. Brilliant set menu- went for the oysters which were fabulous, then the fillet steak which was cooked perfectly & the accompaniments were beautiful! Would definitely recommend.

I have been eating at this restuarant for the last 12 years.Yet the staff has yet to treat me like a local. In fact at times they have been rude.
